Bird & Bird is pleased to announce that its international outsourcing practice has been awarded a coveted position on the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP®) list of the "World's Best Outsourcing Advisers"1 for 2013.
The IAOP® list recognises the top 20 advisers worldwide, in which Bird & Bird was ranked number twelve. The IAOP® is a global standard setting organisation and advocate for the outsourcing profession, with more than 120,000 members and affiliates worldwide.
Mark Leach, Head of Bird & Bird's International Outsourcing Practice Group, commented: "We are delighted to receive this recognition which is a real testimony to the international strength of our outsourcing practice, and our track record in helping clients achieve successful outcomes in this area."
Jag Dalal, Chief Advisor, Thought Leadership at the IAOP and chairman of the judges' panel commented that: "As the outsourcing industry continues to grow and mature in many markets, competition is tougher. Being named to the World's Best Outsourcing Advisers is a great achievement, particularly given the strong competition, and we are proud to recognise Bird & Bird for their excellence."
Bird & Bird won further recognition for its outsourcing expertise recently when the firm was shortlisted for the 'Best Adviser' category at the European Outsourcing Association's annual awards in Amsterdam.
